As an employee of Washington College, you may be eligible for certain benefits - such as medical, dental, vision and life insurance - at group rates.  Washington College pays for the majority of the monthly cost of the benefits you choose to enroll in, and you pay a portion as well.  In addition, the company pays for the entire cost of a life insurance policy on your behalf.

Employees who work an average of 30 hours per week are eligible for health insurance (see HR for more information on eligibility for Retirement).  All employees are required to have health insurance and must either join a plan offered by the College or show evidence of coverage by another plan.  Most of your benefits are effective on the first day of the month following your date of hire.  Your dependents can also enroll for coverage, including:

  • Your legal spouse
  • Your domestic partner* 
    Your domestic partner is eligible for benefits if he or she is not a relative and has lived with you for at least six months in a committed relationship. For more information about domestic partner benefits, contact Human Resources
  • Your children up to age 26

Remember that you may only change cover if you experience a qualifying life event. For additional information on Qualifying Events please click here.
